The 405 shuts down, but we gain our lives.

The 405 shuts down, but we gain our lives.
* Finally cracked TIME Cartoons of the Week with this one! Yes, it took a local LA cartoon to make good on the East Coast. Also in Daily News today, LA Observed, CalWatchdog. You can’t know the excitement here about…a Freeway. The worst freeway. The one everyone hates to hate, the 405. The warnings started ...

Cartoons on WikiLeaks, vets, and the Pope!

Cartoons on WikiLeaks, vets, and the Pope!
Each week I think, I’m just going to limit it to the three best opinion cartoons this time, but I always find myself adding a couple of others – so I’m going to divide this roundup into a 2-parter. I was shocked this week, SHOCKED to have an editor at a major book publisher tell ...

I had to wade through a lot of elephants saying no to Obama (for Supreme Court nominees), and a lot of  Tea Party ridiculers, and of course Sarah Palin haters, before I found these gems. (I ...

Tiger Woods, the Dalai Lama, and Bad Bananas.

Tiger Woods, the Dalai Lama, and Bad Bananas.
You know what’s really weird? I had NO idea Tiger Woods was a Buddhist!  As I wrote in an earlier post, I knew he was a golfer, and that’s it.  It’s just that I was kind of annoyed Obama had that secret meeting with the Dalai Lama yesterday. Sensitive issue, or secrets exchanged? I  don’t ...
